Miss You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I stamped the Butterfly from the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set 3 times using Malachite, Azure and Peacock Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paints. I cut each one out using Spellbinders Classic Squares. I cut 3 Spellbinders Captivating Squares out of Black Card.

I placed the 3 captivating squares onto my background piece. I stamped the sentiment strip from the Justrite Doily One Stamp Set using the Azure Shimmer Paint all around the edges. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Powder.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Pink Sherbet Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I popped the sentiment from the Justrite Applique Flowers Clear Stamp Set onto my acrylic block and let the frame from the same stamp set fall onto the block around it. I stamped it using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Sentiment Tag Dies.

I stamped the Justrite Floral Stitched Background using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lapis Pink Aurora. I cut it out using Sue's Valencia Die Set (from the Spanish Collection) and inked through the die with Pink Sherbet. I cut a Spellbinders Mystical Embrace Die and set it behind the Valencia Die Cut.

I cut some flowers using Sue's Faux Quilled Blooms Die Set and some leaves using Sue's Fern Trio Die Set.

Painted Panels

Hi Bloggers.

Back from a great day at Inspirations yesterday. Lovely to see so many crafters there.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder.

I popped a little Peacock Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I picked some paint up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and 'inked' up the Justrite Fleur Twist Backgound. I stamped the background twice (inking up inbetween each stamping). I cut 3 panels and mounted onto Teal Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Doily One Stamp Set using the Peacock Paint. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies. I cut a Justrite Filigree Layers Die out of Teal Card.

I changed the colour of a piece of White Crochet Ribbon using Peacock Paint applied with Cut n Dry Foam. I did this on both sides of the ribbon. Once dry, I cut it down the centre and made a couple of flowers. I made another flower out of the White Crochet Ribbon. I cut some Faux Quilled Leaves out of Teal Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Pearl Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Thank You So Much

Hi Bloggers.

I'm at Inspirations in Preston today demoing some Christmas stamps and masks and other goodies. If you're in the area, please stop by.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by stamping the Justrite Iron Swirls Background on the right hand side of a piece of Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lagoon Lilac Aurora Embossing Powder.

I popped a little Azure Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I picked some paint up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and 'inked' up the Justrite Fleur Twist Background. I stamped this on the left hand side of the card. I ran a piece of Vintage Ribbon in Limoges Blue along the join in the backgrounds.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set using the Azure Paint. I cut it out using one of the dies from Sue's Italian Decorative Frames Die Set and inked through the die with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink.

Love the Simple Things

Hi Bloggers.

Tracey has asked me to let you know that are a couple of spaces left on both of my workshops at Creative Expressions HQ in Kettering on August 5th. Details are in the left hand sidebar of this blog if you're interested in finding out more.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder. I popped a little Bronze Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet and picked some up using Cut n Dry Foam. I rubbed this over the surface to highlight the embossed design. I wrapped a piece of Cream Crochet Ribbon around the centre.


I stamped the Justrite Sculpted Leaves background using Gold, Bronze and Rich Oak Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint. I used Cut n Dry Foam to apply the paint, starting with Gold in the centre, then Bronze either side and then Rich Oak at the top and bottom. It's important to work fast as the paint dries quickly. Most of the paint will come off the stamp with a Grime Boss.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Rose Bouquet Vintage Labels 7 Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies. I stamped the little flourish from the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set top and bottom of the die cut using Rich Oak CS Shimmer Paint. I edged the die cut with a little Gold CS Shimmer Paint.

I cut 2 Justrite Vintage Flourish Two Dies out of Ginger Card and added then to the right hand corners of the background.

I tied a bow using Cream Crochet Ribbon and added a Bronze Vintage Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

I'm heading up North this afternoon as I'm demoing at Inspirations in Preston all day tomorrow. Maybe I'll see some of you there.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
